A little gem of a find!

Posted Apr 12, 2017
Pros: Location - excellent Welcome and check in - uncomplicated Host and staff - brilliantly helpful Food - very tasty
Cons: If I had one issue, it was that there was a street light over the road and the curtains weren't very thick so it wasn't very dark in the room
Location: Kingussie is a great place to stay to access the Cairngorms. Lots of wildlife and birds in the area as well as spectacular mountains and lochs
Great host, very friendly and helpful who couldn't do enough. As I was travelling on my own, I felt very safe and well looked after. Lovely bedroom, spotlessly clean. Great access to the Cairngorms and surrounding areas. Wonderful home-cooked food. Had dinner after a long journey enjoying a great glass of Pinot. The menu is quite uncomplicated and simple, but the quality is excellent, the portions generous and home made. It was lovely to see the restaurant/bar quite full too - especially on a Monday night. Excellent cooked breakfast too set me up for the day. Would definitely go back

Pros: Great for the train
Cons: bedside lamp, unwelcoming bar lighting.
Location: There are plenty of hotels within 200 metres but this is nearest to train station
Due to train delay did not arrive until 10-30 pm, but arrived by car not train! Chose this hotel because it is literally across the road from the train station. for this it is ideal. No food available but rachel behind the bar conjured up some tomato soup and two miniscule pieces of bread for which we were charged £5 EACH. The 5* Cross at kingussie only charges that and they have the Scottish young chef of the year!! The bar area seemed dark, dingy and the windows were filthy. The bedside light was impossible to read by. We were tired from our long journey so maybe our first impression was a bit jaundiced. Generally the hotel was ok but could do with a makeover

Pros: location, staff and food...
Cons: we had to leave
Location: Kingussie is stunning location with beautiful forest walks, as well as a great base for visiting the highlands.
Located in the stunning area of Kingussie, this hotel was booked last minute so we did not know what to expect.. On arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a friendly young lady who showed us to our room she then proceeded to provide details on the facilities within the room as well information on breakfast and meal times. We found the room we were provided to be bright and spacious, and spotlessly clean. The room also provided a lovely view over a small stream at the back of the hotel. After a walk through Kingussie and one of the numerous forest walks we returned to the hotel and decided to have our main meal there, this was a good call on our part, the food was of such a high standard. Approximately five starters, mains and deserts are provide,d as well as a varied wine selection. Our personal recommendation would be to try the venison, this chef does know how to cook.. The lounge and bar downstairs does seem to be a hub for a number of the local community, this added to the enjoyment of our stay as it was a nice relaxing way to end a wonderful day. Staff and locals all seemed to be so friendly to we outsiders....Thanks! The breakfast provided again lived up to our growing expectations and set us up nicely for the day ahead.

Fab food at Silverfjord.

Stayed one night on a Friday. Enjoyed a beautifully presented and exceptionally tasty three course meal in the hotel restaurant accompanied by some Cairngorm beer. Would suggest it would be useful to offer residents a reduction if using the restaurant, and a butter knife at breakfast. Also, very difficult to find a member of staff to return the key to.

Eat here, not sleep

Once in lifetime trip; ended up with 1 room with river view and the other street /roof view. No one at counter to check in; had to find someone - the bartender, but he helped us to our rooms. Building older, but quaint. My parent's room (street view) was awkwardly laid out; couldn't open bathroom door all the way cause bed was there. They were up most of night because bar was below their room and VERY LOUD. Our room was spacious and had no problems. Both rooms had extremely difficult showers to operate and lacked outlets in bathroom and in bedroom. We had dinner in bar and the food was FANTASTIC and the drinks were GREAT! Slightly overpriced, but worth it - definately didn't taste or look like bar food. Breakfast was good; typical English breakfast, but server was nice. Neat atmosphere and would go to again!

Great overnight stay

Posted Apr 8, 2013
Stayed here on the 6th of April (a Saturday night) for one night as we were visiting the wildlife centre near by. Checked in at 4pm at the lounge bar and got shown to our room by the friendly staff. Room was spacious (massive bed) and clean with a fairly modern bathroom. Had phoned up a few days ahead of arrival to book a table for dinner which was just as well as the dinning room was very busy at night. And no wonder! My boyfriend and I had a fantastic meal followed by some drinks and live entertainment in the lounge bar area. Breakfast was also very nice with a both hot food and cereals available. All in all a very nice stay and after taking a walk through the village, very glad we picked the Silverfjord over other B&B's!

Nice hotel, not much in Kingussie.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room comfortable. Not much choice of places to eat in Kingussie. Silverfjord's evening meals were very good but expensive (£13 for a burger)
